@NEStalgia Yeah... I guess we'll find out some day.

So the retailer will refund me the One X.

After that I found out that the alone One X is discontinued. And One X is selling only in bundle with one game.

The problem is that the bundled games are just NOT good.

I guess I have to buy one bundle and try to sell the game.

@Zuljaras If the retailer agreed/promised to refund you a standalone Xbox One X, then I would assume that this is his problem, not yours, so you can more or less demand him to give you just the console.

And what games are we talking about here, that are not good, according to you? I've only seen maybe 1 or 2 bundles with games I'm not interested in, such as the Minecraft bundles and so on, but other than that, all others are solid bundles, far as I am concerned.

@ThanosReXXX Oh no. The retailer will refund me the One X. After that I found out that there are no Alone One X consoles for sale at the other retailers. There are Only bundles. It is confirmed and I am awaiting the money now.

Well for me the games I consider BAD in the bundles is Forza. I know many people love it but I do not like and will never play a racing game in my life, same goes for sports games. One exception may be Mario Kart because for reasons unknown to me. It just looks fun.

Fallout 76 is a no go. Battlefield V is a no go. So I am almost out of options.

Perhaps if I find a Tomb Raider bundle but again not a game I die to play. I prefer Assassins Creed Origins or Odyssey.

Also I do not want to end up with noisy console again. Perhaps the newer bundles are better in that matter? Bah who knows ...

@Zuljaras Yeah, I can understand that, if those games aren't to your taste. Here's hoping that they actually come with physical games, then. Although I'm almost certain that it's a digital code, seeing as my bundle also came with a digital game. Good luck selling those...

As for them being noisy: I have an Xbox One S, and it's FAR less noisy than my Xbox 360, so I guess it either depends on what you're used to or what you expect from it. But perhaps we should ask our resident Xbox sound and trouble expert @NEStalgia to comment on this topic, because I haven't had any issues so far.

@Zuljaras I doubt you'll find bundles of particular interest in the near future since it's not game release season and the big games that are "big" enough to get bundles coming up are probably The Division 2, Anthem, Crackdown 3. I doubt DMC5 will get one, it's too niche. New bundles are more of a holiday or maybe summer thing.

In terms of noise, there's no known noisy units. If you got a loud one that was defective, then maybe it was defective. If the next one sounds the same, it's normal, and others aren't as sensitive to those frequencies as you. I mean I'm a "golden eared audiophile." I hear differences in analog cables. I roll tubes. And I don't hear the XBox. Maybe because all those tubes are producing more sound than the fan (I can hear the PS4 beep though.... )

@JoakimZ Welcome to the X band, mate!

@Zuljaras If we heard the video correctly, your first X was normal and don't say we did not tell you, my friend! There are X bundles with Gold and Pass and one of them you can choose the game, at least on Microsoft Store (I don't know if they were time-limited though). Even if you don't like racing games you might enjoy Forza Horizon 4, just saying. Other bundles: Metro trilogy, Shadow of the Tomb Raider (that you mentioned and that I would also recommend)… Retailers must have unofficial bundles, they always do that. I bought the X at launch with no games, like other guys here, so you're getting a better deal whatever you choose and with Game Pass you can check around 200 games.

@NEStalgia I opened the PS4 and broke the beeping unit (does it have a more technical name like 1-bit speaker?). True story. I also vacuumed the dust but still sounds like a hairdryer. I don't care much anymore as now it's the console I use the least.

@BlueOcean yeah but still I returned it ... well tomorrow or on monday I will go and see if I could get a new one. After all it was a Christmas present :/

Welp, looks like XBL had a heart attack (as of a few hours ago). Anything from friends, parties, games, and online game services might be down on anyone's end. I'm starting to think that might be why I got booted from online in SoT...

EDIT: Might be back now.

Just played the RE2 demo!

I'm so glad it has an assisted mode, as much as like these games I'm trash at aiming with an analog stick. This gives me much more confidence in my chances of beating the full game.

Too bad after 30 minutes it's just a junk file....

I haven't played the RE2 demo. I will buy the game day one (probably physical and digital because I collect the main RE games physically) and play it in the evenings or at night.

I played the RE7 demo before the game because it has minimal spoilers (nothing I would consider a spoiler anyway) and I confess I was terrified while playing it, it is so realistic and you don't have enough ammunition or anything.

RE7 is a good change after 6 but I am an old-school RE fan and that means I want the original buddies, the viruses lore (must-read) and the infected hosts more than anything else. I hope this sells so well that we'll see 3 (as rumoured) and Code Veronica (the RE game with the best story) soon.

The RE2 demo seems to be a short part of the actual game. Mostly what we saw in the earlier trailers.

It's great. Lots of fumbling in the dark trying to escape the zombies while you waste your ammo.

As a fan of the original, it was amazing to see the police station reimagined but still feeling so familiar.

Series 5 update comes to Forza Horizon 4 tomorrow. New features (some of which may not be active until the seasonal change on Thursday) include:

  • Free-for-All Adventure. Adventure modes, sans teams.
  • “Taxi!“, a new business Story where you serve as, well... a taxi driver. Horizon-style.
  • Mitsubishi returns with a free car pack. Includes seven cars.
  • The next wave of car pass cars.
  • Between Series updates 5 & 6, a garage space increase is coming. Due to how it changes save file data, it needs more testing.

@BlueOcean I think I am going to buy the Robot White bundle with Fallout 76 and then sell the code in G2A. The retailer do not have Shadow of the Tomb raider bundle and they do not know when they are going to import more consoles.

Very sad.

PS: Or I could wait and see if they import the Metro Exodus Xbox One X bundle here.

@Zuljaras Hmm, decisions... Have you considered the Xbox One Elite controller (black or white)? If mine ever breaks I'll get another. The only thing that broke was two of the rubber stick caps while playing Fortnite.

Another thing with that Series 5 patch for Horizon 4... they removed the Carlton and Floss emotes, apparently. I guess they got spooked after seeing Fortnite being attacked from all sides by money sharks (even though the emotes are 100% free in FH4 and gosh dang it it's body movement, are you going to copyright waving next?! )
